Hi, I noticed that pieces of plastron seem to have peeled off or damaged on my diamond back terrapin. I'm not sure if it is something I should be worked about or if he is starting to shed. I have attached a picture.

water turtles shed the keratin from their scutes and plastron...it's clear...mine just finished...it's natural...

I was under the impression that the scute pieces would shed in complete pieces and not in small pieces like this. Thank you.
sorry but I didn't see small pieces....I'm sure somebody will come in and tell you what you want...
